Tenancy is a form of access granting referred to as a right of use. Cooperative housing and leasing are other forms of right of use. ASTRA ADVOKATER provides legal counselling regarding all tenancy, leasing and other right of use relationships within real estate law. For instance, within tenancy law, there are many requirements that landlords often overlook, which can lead to both invalidity and costly consequences. ASTRA ADVOKATER has long experience of drafting tenancy and leasing contracts, non-enforcement of protected tenancy, premise transfers, subletting, damages, renegotiation, extension disputes and mediation in the rent tribunal. We also help out with matters related to cooperative housing, such as re-forming a tenancy unit as a cooperative housing unit.

Construction contract law
Construction projects are complicated and risky. A contractor and a purchaser need to understand the connections between legislation and rules, blueprints and technical descriptions and contracts – and how these interact with each other. Usually, construction projects extend over long periods. In construction contract law, the work is divided into phases. Construction usually begins with the tendering phase and signing of contracts. This is followed by execution, i.e., the actual construction. After the end of construction, there are subsequent guarantee periods to consider. A contractor is usually liable for any errors in the construction within ten years of a final inspection. A lot can happen during the course of a construction project, such as inclement weather, unexpectedly poor ground conditions, delivery problems, strikes, bankruptcy, etc. This can lead to legal issues. As a construction project is complicated, with many uncertainty factors and long-term commitment on the part of the contractor, it is important to have the best possible instruments to succeed with the project. One important instrucment is a well-written construction contract.
